840 Faestock Manor
SUBMITTED IN CREATIVE ART CHALLENGE #25 - Victoriana ------> faestock.deviantart.com/journa...
I remember as always nothing in this work is mine....i create these only for pure fun and homework hobby because im not able to drawing so i
try to free my "artistic" expression using photomanipulation...i know not is the same thing to be able to drawing!!!
i have used only others stocks (without them these works will be impossible for me)
Thx to all these to share ur hard and big works
My idea was simply.....create a particular scenery with mistery and paranormal activity....The 4° maid is a phantom...the neckband of the masked man is bloodstained...Who know, probably he have killed the 4° maid
and i don't know...the 3 main subjects could be vampires
I leave at ur fantasy the choose to think this
This work as been hard because the original manor shoot got some hard tonal contrast to be controlled in the dark! Im keeping try to convert
in dark ambience because this is my limit.....and im trying to overcome it...but the way is long yet
Im not an artist so for me is so hard
create some lighting the most real possible! For this reason in some my dark works there is more surreal light
But to compensate at this......i concentrate all myself to create little visual interaction between subjects-objects....so to create little stories.....
Well i try to do this
In Random order...this time id like remember these peoples:
Melusine for ur 1000 works full of passion and love
and Karin for ur 1000 smiles and lovely works
I'd like dedicate this to 3 interesting artist and new entry friends too:
this time nothing skulls
Only paranormal activity...is ok = for u? haha I hope u'll come back with
In these last months i have enanched a bit my skill to create ambiental lights and interaction between subjects-objects, watching and studying some masters artists as for example Daniela
I'd like remember 3 other sweet friends and their effort and lovely works full of expressivity
Nephire for ur energy and fantasy
PERSONAL THOUGHTS - TIPS - LINKS:
U know i repeat always i haven't secrets about my works.....in all my tutorial little or big i try to explain which is my flow work technic...so u can check
all them if u are a bit interested
Before apply special effects and final adjustments, is so important work all lights and shadows at max possible and inimaginable!!!!!!
for this reason these works are so long to be created! If u do mistakes with these things.....the work will be bad and without visual harmony!!
At the end, u know, i do always many final test to find the right balancing...of course based on my personal taste and vision!
Let me show someone of these:

Special Effect On-Off detail 2: sta.sh/028o71r1sypy
BLEND TIP: To increase the tonal detail on the statue i have used a simply blend LinearLight...because in this case is powerfull -----> sta.sh/01pubqr4jmcb
OTHER TIP-FEATHER: If u work with a mask, IN GENERAL, is a powerfull thing work with Feather mask because u'll diffuse more the effect and it the
visual will work more in harmony ----> sta.sh/0lkq1kdkcrq
VARIOUS TIPS: Here i'd like remember some tips! 1) I work always in 16 bit and save always in png.....so i not loose details. 2) I use smart objects to resize because it isn't destructive 3) i pay attention to proportion and perspective always...4) I give always breath to the scene working much on composition....in my little tutorials i talk always about these concepts...yes in my final work tutorial the goal not is the outcome but always the concepts!!! Without concepts, technic is nothing and without technic, concepts are nothing!
5) To cut out in general i use always magic eraser tool with all ur powerfull options: tolerance and contiguos but i work also on a mask with a brush with high hardness in general 50-80.....of course i use hardness 0 for particular zones 6) I use adapt every subject using low blur values (0,...but depends of the image size and quality!)so the subject will be with the same depth of the point where its above. 7) The third rule is important......if don't know how use it u can't broke this rule! Sometimes i read of peoples tell do not use this rule...but they don't understand nothing about this rule! This rule is applyed in professional field....and u can study it every where on the net!
